Chapter Summary

The social and economic revolution that Catalonia experienced in the first months of civil war was multifaceted, and it played itself out in many different sectors. After the Collectivisation and Workers' Control Decree, one of the most important decrees called for the 'municipalisation' of housing, which attempted to resolve a problem that had affected the Catalan popular classes for decades. Urban resources in the region of Catalonia are now property of the city governments (Ajuntaments), each of which will appropriate the properties within its municipal boundaries. To affect the transferral and management of urban property, city governments will form an autonomous administration called Cajas Inmobiliarias. The Cajas Inmobiliarias shall be controlled by a Board of Directors comprising a president and the following representational distribution: one third, representatives of the city, made up of town councilors.

Keywords: Cajas Inmobiliarias; Catalonia; housing; municipalisation; urban property
